King's Lynn residents urged to keep homes secure

Police are urging residents to keep their homes secure following a house burglary in King's Lynn last weekend.

Suspect/s entered the property in Balmoral Road via an insecure window prompting a warning from officers. The burglary happened sometime between 7pm on Saturday, 27 January and 11am on Sunday, 28 January.

Detective Constable Emma Cross at King's Lynn Police said: "I would urge residents to ensure their homes are secured at all times. Make sure you lock all doors and windows, even when you are in the house.

"If you do go out leave a light on, close windows and blinds and consider leaving a radio on. An opportunistic thief is less likely to take a chance if they think someone could be inside the home.

"I would also encourage members of the community to be vigilant and if you see someone acting suspiciously in your neighbourhood, call the police on 101. Pay particular attention to descriptions, unfamiliar vehicles and to number plates. However, if you think a crime is in progress, call police on 999.”

A large screen TV, CCTV hard drive and iPads were among the items stolen in the burglary.

Anyone with information is asked to call DC Cross at King's Lynn Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
